    How would you advertise a college basketball site

    I'm willing to spend some money, too. CPC is a possibility, but I want to look in every possible way.

    I've contacted a lot of blog/forum owners and I'm writing columns for people, getting blurbs about my site in blog posts, mass emails sent about my site, but I want it to keep growing. How should I work it?

    I would consider doing some offline advertising. I've no idea how much these ideas would cost, but:
    Sponsor the kit of a college team
    Have an advert in the program for a game
    Make some t-shirts with your URL on and send them to some college teams
    Make some flyers to hand out at a game

    First two are way out of my budget.

    Third is pricey but decent.

    Last one is decent, I'll consider it. Bad thing is we'll get a lot of one single fan base.

    Looking for more suggestions please!

    I remember FaceBook doing some sort of results prediction tournament for college basketball, could you do something like that? If you had a challenge your friends type of thing then it could get big on you, especially if you offered a half decent prize.

    Use college billboards.

    Offline marketing is the best IMHO

    College Billboards.

    As in rent an actual billboard? Doesn't that cost thousands?

    I mean I'm not rich...
